John A. Elliott, formerly the associate dean of academic affairs at Georgia State University.


Zicklin is the only CUNY unit accredited by the AACSB-International Association for Management Education.


In 1919, the City College of New York established a School of Business and Civic Administration, offering its first MBA program one year later. This school was renamed in 1953 in honor of Bernard M. Baruch, noted statesman and financier, who was instrumental in the College's formation. In 1968, Baruch became an independent senior college offering the only AACSB accredited business programs within CUNY. It has since grown to become the largest collegiate school of business in the nation.

In 1998, the school was renamed, the Zicklin School of Business, in recognition of an $18 million donation by Lawrence and Carol Zicklin. Zicklin ('57), was formerly the managing partner of investment management firm, Neuberger Berman.
